Napoli hosts Juventus in round 21 of Italian Serie A. The match will be played on Sunday, January 26th at Stadio San Paolo (Naples)
After the change of coach and the arrival of Gennaro Gattuso, Napoli's football players are obviously in decline. They already talk about an erroneous appointment and the possible dismissal of Gennaro. In the last five matches, the team from Naples suffered four defeats and gained only one victory over Sassuolo. Napoli lost three games in a row - to Inter, Lazio, and Fiorentina. And Napoli will most likely lose the fourth time in a row. Malcuit and Mertens will definitely not take part in the match, and the participation of Koulibaly and Ghoulam is still questionable. Given the attacking potential of the Old Lady, it is unlikely that the men of Gattuso will manage to keep a clean sheet. The team will play defense first, which does not fit the usual Napoli’s style, and this will play Old Harry with them. Ronaldo or Dybala will surely upset Alex Meret, but whether Milik and the company will be able to score is a big question.

Juventus has dominated in Serie A for several years. This year Inter has been trying to bare its teeth, but it is unlikely that the Milanese will manage to take the gold from Cristiano and Co. The defense of Napoli does not look like an impregnable fortress, and given the performers in the attacking group of Juve, the Old Lady will score more than one goal. Naples is in an obvious crisis, the team is in decline, and its current position in the standings graphically reflects this. Coefficients on Juventus are obviously overstated, but the bookmakers seem to count on the character temper and fighting qualities of the Napoli players, and the fact that Gattuso will manage to come up with something and beat his counterpart. I don’t believe in it at all. Most likely Napoli will lose with a 0-2 score and will remain empty-handed.
The last three head-to-head meetings have invariably ended in favor of the Old Lady, and this tendency is unlikely to change. Napoli died out after the arrival of Gattuso. The game ceased to be open and attacking, and this resulted in three defeats in a row. It seems like it's time to break this streak, but not in the case when your opponent is Juve. I’ll bet on a zero handicap of Juventus.
Prediction for the match: Juventus to win with 0.0 handicap
